Pretty good workout today. Didn't take very long but it was really hard and felt like it took forever. My grip is a little biatch and slipped on the 4th rep of 455. Then I did 495 for a single but I went lightheaded at the top and set it down really quickly. I'm 95% sure I got the rep but I'm also 95% sure I didn't hold it for long enough in strict competition. Then I did a drop down set, 3 reps touch n go with relatively slow negatives, switched my grip, then 2 paused at the floor reps, then held for 10 sec at the top. Chins were pretty lame, my chinning strength has gone down a lot. On my third set I tweaked my right bicep because I jumped up to the bar instead of standing on the tip of my toes to reach it, and caught it more with my right. That made everything else today feel weird, my right lat felt like it was working a lot more, probably because my right arm was compromised. On that note, a little tangent, my right arm hit 17 inches around yesterday! But yeah everything else was pretty good, right quad cramped on the second set of 1 leg squats with weight so I dropped it down to no weight. Kroc rows were all right but my grip isn't what it used to be, I used to be able to do 100 lb DBs for 20 reps. Then again that was with my hands caked in chalk instead of lightly dusted like now, back when I weighed 215 in high school. I was 198 today, and my biceps are bigger now, so I'm not too disappointed.
Also found out I have a kidney problem, got a blood test last week and my vitamin D is very low and my creatinine is very high, my pee is very bubbly. So I'm discontinuing the creatine. Now I"m forced to train 2 days on 1 day off because of limited recovery. That's fine though, still a lot of volume and bodybuilding work. I just hope I can keep my arms around 17 inches, but we'll see! But the kidney problem explains why I've always carried so much water, I bought a vitamin D supp and a kidney support supp which should be arriving in the mail this week hopefully, so we'll see how that goes. Triceps/shoulders tomorrow.
